Dee and her family have been members of Trinity since 1971. Her involvement in Trinity Deaf and Hard of Hearing ministries began in 1984 when she was on a church committee to call a part-time pastor fluent in American Sign Language (ASL) to serve the greater Reading area.
She took sign language classes to learn ASL. For 32 years she volunteered for the Deaf Church. Since the 2010 death of Trinity Deaf’s pastor, The Rev. Jeanne Beadle, Dee has been the Deaf Ministry Coordinator serving Trinity’s Deaf and Hard of Hearing parish.
